The Learning and Development Team for Kmart/Sears Retail Services was recently named a recipient of the Brandon Hall Group Silver Award for Excellence in the Unique or Innovative Leadership Development Program category.
“Winning a Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award means an organization is an elite innovator within Human Capital Management (HCM). The award signifies that the organization’s work represents a leading practice in that HCM function,” said Rachel Cooke, chief operating officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “Their achievement is also notable because of the positive impact their work in HCM has on business results. All award winners have to demonstrate a measurable benefit to the business, not just the HCM operation. That’s an important distinction. Our HCM award winners are helping to transform the business.”
SHC was recognized for its Leadership Development programs, including Grow Entry-Level Management Training, Assistant Store Manager in Training, Assistant Store Manager Academies, Store Manager Academies, Advanced Leadership Development Academies and the High Potential Program for entry-level leadership. The Leadership Development/Talent Management Portal was also recognized.
“Our team is honored to have received this award. It is truly a privilege to work with our store leadership teams to help improve the associate value proposition,” said Bill Holland, SHC’s director of learning and development. “We are humbled and grateful for the opportunity to equip, enable and empower our store associates. A special thanks to all of SHC leaders who contributed to this recognition and congratulations to the Retail Services Learning and Development team for their work and commitment in developing our company’s leaders!”
